Harrison lost his FIRST tooth today! he was hilarious! he was eating a PB&J sandwich for his second helping of lunch - growth spurt i guess - and kept complaining that his teeth felt bumpy. i suggested he may need to brush them but he kept complaining. i finally went over to look and survey the situation. one of his bottom front teeth was loose, very wiggly. he was very excited and i told him he could play with it and eventually it would come out.
he kept going in and out of the bathroom to check it out and i finally asked him to close the drain so it wouldn't get lost "if" it did come out - i didn't think it was that ready. i was on the phone with Katy and he comes over and tells me that he's going to go into the bathroom and shut the door so if it comes out it will be a surprise. after he walked away, i joked to her that i was surprised that he wasn't more upset about the whole thing. he's usually quite cautious and i thought for sure the unknown of the situation would take him over the edge. as she and i are talking, i hear him swishing and spitting and i ask if he is ok. he comes out of the bathroom holding his tooth with the cutest little look on his face. my BIG boy just took it out! i couldn't believe it! i remember being such a basket case when my first tooth was lose!!!
he told me that it bled a little but that it was ok and that the blood would go away! what a big boy!
so here he is...with one less tooth! when he had his dentist appointment last month they said that his bottom teeth were a bit loose and he could loose one as early as three months but i guess they were more lose than they thought! :)
i guess this is a sign that he is REALLY growing up!
